St. Dunstan in the East

St. Dunstan in the East is a magical gem hidden amongst the skyscrapers of the City of London.  The church dates back to around 1100 and the steeple designed by Sir Christopher Wren was added in 1695 after damage during the Great Fire of London. The building was badly damaged again by bombing during the Blitz in 1941, but it was never re-built and 30 years later in 1971 the ruins became a public garden.

Hollye and Conor chose St. Dunstan in the East as a backdrop for their wedding photos as it’s one of their favourite spots in London. It’s a great spot for a photographer too, as almost every angle of the ruined church garden makes a perfect backdrop.

Ceremony at Woolwich Town Hall

Unusually we shot the portraits at St. Dunstan early in the day, to catch the morning light, and then travelled on to the ceremony venue at the beautiful Woolwich Town Hall – with a few more portraits of the couple with their gorgeous dog, Burdock along the bank of the Thames with Tower Bridge as a backdrop.

“I absolutely love the photographs. You perfectly captured the day for us and our families… Thank you so much for recording our day so well!”
